Meth Seva Foundation at Handapanagala gets a play area from DIMO

February 1, 2014

Meth Seva Foundation is a government registered centre at Handapanagala (close to Wellawaya) which looks after physically and mentally handicapped children.

The foundation takes care of 31 individuals from 2 to 35 years of age.

•         Out of the 31 individuals 20 are below the age of 20 years.

•         4 young girls and 27 males.

•         11 children do not have a single parent, 8 children cannot walk and 6 children have epilepsy.

•         5 children have been left on the road by parents and handed over to the foundation by courts.

•         From these 31 individuals, 23 are unable to do anything by themselves.

•         Some of these children are both physically and mentally handicapped.

The initial request from the Foundation was for used tires only, to make a safe play area for the children. DIMO discussed with the foundation and identified that their need was far greater than used tyres, hence decided to do a full play area. This play area is vital since the physically handicapped children need daily exercise for their limbs and all others need physical activity to keep them active.

The Corporate Communications Team visited the Foundation at Handapanagala recently to evaluate the progress of the play area and to get a first-hand experience of the situation. Dry rations and food items were donated to the foundation on the same day. The foundation is well managed and well organized, and surprisingly very clean – considering that most children go to toilet on their beds two times a day. The Director of the Foundation thanked DIMO for their kindness and generosity and mentioned that it exceeded their expectations.
